COVID isolation ride

Post by Bender » Sun Mar 22, 2020 6:27 pm

@XTreme Well seeing as XTreme is using the frankly weak excuse of a global pandemic, death, police controlled streets and the army as an excuse to shy off from riding the previously deserted back water streets he calls home the rest of us are going to take up the slack, not that there is much to take up

Took a while to find another car, it was hard to spot amongst all the green.

Unfortunately these selfish morons decided to ignore all the advice and gather in large numbers at Matlock Bath . It's c***s like these that will ruin the summer for the rest of us .

Going for a solo ride is one thing, but group gatherings should be avoided, they need their rides confiscated if they can't be trusted to be responsible people :twisted:

That's why I enjoyed riding around Rutland and Northants today !
No need to stop with people and take away coffee van was the only person I spoke with face to face between 09.30 and 16.00.
I nodded to loads of other bikes but they seemed to be individuals or very small groups maybe 2 or 3.
Didn't see any gatherings like those people in the pic.
I am probably a bit weird but I prefer to be moving when on the bike rather than chatting with others ( bore easily lol)
Cheers

Agree with the advice to ride and also that folk should take into account the strain the NHS is under, having seen the prats today I recon unnecessary travel ban will be on the way soon.

watching some breakfast news, looking more likely that a complete lockdown will be implemented within the next 24hrs, all due to the incompetent ar*eholes gathering at the weekend :roll:
